I was in Chinatown shopping and remembered the decorations. I took this photo at the pedestrian crossing. You can hardly see the monkeys from this view although the peach tree is gorgeous with its flowers and fruits.
By the time the light turned green and I was on the other side, rain came pouring down.
I remember tatting these swans in glitter thread. Yes they are here. I know I kept them somewhere but it is easier to tat them again than to go look for them. They will turn up someday when you are not looking for them.
I am running out of Perle cotton threads in bright colours. These animals look better in brighter colours for the kids. I hesitate to get new Perle cotton threads. I just have to use the Lizbeth instead. Should have started with Lizbeth and used them throughout.
The pattern is found in Animal Bookmarks - A Tatted Zoo by Dianna Stevens.
I wanted to tat this earlier but was scared off by the SSSR (Single shuttle split ring). I finally tried it but gave up and used two shuttles and split rings instead. I think the boys would really love these flying dragons. Too bad I ran out of perle cotton threads in red, otherwise one would definitely be red.
The pattern is by Anne Bruvold. Thank you for a very interesting pattern. It isn't as difficult as I thought it would be. Try it!
